Grateful Dead Live at Seminole Indian Village on 1969-05-23
- Live concert
- Grateful Dead
- DeadLists Project
This show has been commercially released as "Road Trips: Vol 4, Number 1"
Complete show from compilation of reel master and what is believed to be the cassette master.
source 2 provides:
--all of Hard To Handle
--from 2:53 in The Eleven to the end of the show
--Source 2 originated from a Serafin edit and originally was listed as a reel master, though there is reason to believe it was mastered on cassette, as noted on Eaton's list. There are remnants of digital processing in the recording, including distortion from what is likely to be digital moise reduction. Sound Forge was used to correct the pitch and patch in the portions from the higher quality reel source.
--this exact shn set may have seen limited circulation in early 2002 with the 2nd source listed as unknown.

Subject: RT 4/1
I wouldn't bother with these sliced-up boards; RT4/1 is worth investing in for the clearest sound possible, given that it is rough-and-tumble '69...the fab four (DS>SS>11>LL) is as good as its ever been, particularly Lovelight! Jerry is simply out of control; here and on Dark Star there are moments when T.C. joins Jerry up there in the stratosphere and, *man* is that ever cool!

Subject: Dark Star
That said ... this particular Dark Star is phenomenal. Next to 2-13-70, I think it probably has the largest number of memorable unique moments of any pre-Keith Dark Star. Unlike 2-13-70, almost all of what is happening here appears to be driven by Garcia who is plainly experiencing some sort of 20 minute creative orgasm.
The other notable feature -- and what especially appeals to me -- is the variety of percussion sounds that are heard as the performance progresses. Awesome. As in other Dark Stars from this era, the microphones used to capture the castanets, maracas, or whatever small acoustic percussion instruments are used tend to pick up the sound of the guitars which leads, in turn, to a wonderful haze of quintessentially Dead-like feedback and overtones hanging over the entire affair.
The whole show is excellent (the Eleven ain't anything to write home about) but the Dark Star is extraordinary.

Alot of feeling. My kid may or may not have heard this version before he was born as his mother put the headphones around her belly while it played at very high volume.
Subject: Definately better than live dead....
